Dry conditions won't cancel Rhythm & Booms


MADISON (WKOW) -- It's been so dry that some people have wondered whether independence day fireworks shows will be canceled.

While that may end up being the case in some communities, Madison's Rhythm & Booms show will not be canceled because of fire danger.

Organizers got that word Thursday from Madison Fire Department officials.

"If it remains dry, they may spread water around the area close to the firing island. The area where the fireworks are shot is ideal, because there's water all around it," said organizer Terry Kelly.

Kelly also says they need volunteers to help with everything from concessions to donation pick-ups. You can sign-up by clicking here.
